About

The Legacy

Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter from the company that gave players the saga of Azeroth, Starcraft and the Diablo universe. Despite these releases coming out years ago, they are still alive and actively updated. But the developers at Blizzard wanted something new: the company does not like to experiment with new settings, preferring to transfer existing characters to new genres, worlds, and situations. The exception, perhaps, can only be a game about the three Vikings—The Lost Vikings, but this, too, was a long time ago.

The story and setting

Anyway, the company Blizzard has approached the development of Overwatch with team-specific meticulousness to details and desire to create an elaborative game universe. The player faces a choice between 21 characters who were part of the elite Overwatch unit. The task of Overwatch soldiers is to protect the Earth from conflicts and external threats. But something goes wrong, and the team of heroes breaks up. Despite the multiplayer bias, the game has a full story, it combines all the characters and maps on which the battle takes place. Since the launch, seven new characters have been added to the hero pool. Blizzard tells the story of the world of Overwatch through their characters: almost everyone has an animated short film, comparable in quality to a full meter from, for example, Pixar.

Continuous support

The game won the hearts of players around the world immediately after the launch. The figures confirm this fact: more than half a million dollars from sales and more than 40 million players. Overwatch has become an anchor project for Activision Blizzard, and the company continues to develop the project two years later, constantly offering players new maps, new characters, new themed events, and new cosmetic skins.

      Overwatch reviews and comments

      A title over which someone was needed to watch, but that's all over with now.  Pass the nitrogen dioxide to the left.

      That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.  
      «That ending!»
      Easy to learn hard to master. Great shooter, lore, characters... and the new blueprint.

      An absolute stunner of a FPS. This team-based shooter is peak hero shooter. The cooperation becomes absolutely necessary and can lead to intense frustration when matched with the wrong squad.

      It seems to be getting too big for its britches. The larger the game, the harder to access.
      9.0/10 - One of the best Multiplayer first person shooter ever made!
      «Just one more turn»
      «Can’t stop playing»
      Best game of the decade. Beautiful graphics, fast paced, very versatile characters, lots to play. Fun and enjoyable overall.
      «Can’t stop playing»
      A couple of years ago I would've rated this as "Exceptional" and while it is one of the better multiplayers out there, over time it gets less fun to play. I would often yell out loud over how stupid the other players were, making us lose the match. There are also some buffs and nerfs that seem to happen for the sake of it, and new lore, characters, and maps are released at a snail's pace. It's a good game but I recommend playing it sporadically so it remains fun for a long time. 
      I never bought overwatch but I’ve played over two free weekends and I played it a lot each time. I had fun with Overwatch but nothing really made me want to keep playing. It was fun playing the different characters. And I found some favourites that I really did enjoy. But at the end of the free trials I was satisfied with my time.

      Final Score: B+
      starting this game was an absolute joy. i played a bunch of it for fun with friends, and played couch-competitive for awhile, cementing a relatively high rank (diamond) for being a casual player that had never done much FPS. it got stale for me at a certain point and the matches started feeling too same-y, but i definitely got out my money's worth
      Most fun I've had in a multiplayer game since the early COD games. Better be a teamplayer if you play though, or else you'll have a very limited experience.
